Michael Andrews was a British painter.  He was born in Norwich, England, the second child of Thomas Victor Andrews and his wife Gertrude Emma Green. He completed his National service between 1947 and 1949, nineteen months of which was spent in Egypt. From 1949 to 1953 he studied at the Slade School of Fine Art under William Coldstream, Lucian Freud, William Townsend and Lawrence Gowing. Fellow students and friends there included Victor Willing, Keith Sutton, Diana Cumming, Euan Uglow and Craigie Aitchison. In 1953 he spent six months in Italy after receiving a Rome Scholarship in Painting.

From 1958 he taught at the Slade and Chelsea School of Art. February 1958 – June 1960 he held a fellowship at the Digswell Arts Trust, for a period sharing a studio with Patrick Swift. In 1959 his painting A Man Who Suddenly Fell Over was acquired by the Tate Gallery. In the 1960s, he painted works showing parties; later, the "Lights" series presented views from the air.

Andrews was much impressed by a visit to Ayers Rock in 1983, but the works he produced toward the end of his life are of scenes from Scotland and London. In 1981 he moved to the village of Saxlingham Nethergate in his home county of Norfolk. He was a member of the Norwich Twenty Group.

He painted Sax AD 832 in 1982 to celebrate 1,150 years of the village's history. Major exhibitions of Andrews' works were held by the Arts Council in 1981 and Tate Britain in 2001.

In 1994 he underwent an operation for cancer. He died in London on 19 July 1995. He is buried in Glenartney in Perthshire.

Michael Andrews played a deaf-mute in Lorenza Mazzetti's Free Cinema film Together, alongside Eduardo Paolozzi (1955).
